Some of the best and most innovative businesses and individuals in the market were recognised at the industry’s biggest awards event on February 26.
Held in Grade I-listed venue Tobacco Dock in London, the awards started with a glamorous champagne reception, followed by a three-course meal and entertainment from comedian Rob Beckett.
The trophies were then awarded to the 22 fantastic winning spas, salons and individuals by Beckett and Professional Beauty editor Eve Oxberry, who were also joined on the stage by presenters from sponsor companies including Elemis, Heaven, Dröm, Decléor and Babor.
Guests shared their pics and congratulatory messages on the big screens throughout the night by posting on social media using the hashtags #PBAwards and #WSWAwards. The party then continued into the night as winners and finalists celebrated on the dancefloor. We find out what made the winning businesses stand out.
